Astros’ Triple-A to be in Fresno in 2015

The Astros will have their Triple-A affiliate in Fresno, Calif., next season, the Grizzlies announced via Twitter.

Fresno, which had been partnered with the San Francisco Giants, will replace Oklahoma City, which had served as the Astros’ Triple-A affiliate the previous four years. The Dodgers bought a stake in Oklahoma City and will move their Triple-A operations there.

The Grizzlies play at Chukchansi Park in downtown Fresno. The park, which opened in 2002, seats 12,500 fans and features a semi-irregular field shape with dimensions measuring 324 feet down the left field line, 385 in left center, 400 in center field and 335 to the right field foul pole.

Fresno is in the PCL Northern division with Reno, Sacramento and Tacoma.

I’m just relieved that it is not in Colorado Springs. They already have the screwed up climate of Lancaster mess with pitchers – didn’t need to add in Colorado Springs.

Brian, sound interesting, does that mean that you maybe going there to cover some of the Astros Triple – A games and training ?

     

No, Ralph, it’s hard for me to get to the Triple-A games, but perhaps I’ll try if they’re in Tacoma while I’m in Seattle.
